I choose to stay at this Country House Hotel for 1 night, as a much needed break. I was looking for a country hotel, one where I could enjoy the hotel grounds, as well as relax and enjoy some quality accommodation. Chilston Park Hotel did not let me down!
This is a beautiful building; photos do not do justice for this place. You have to visit.
I am pleased I chose a room in the Main house (there are Mews also). It really feels like you are in the original building, from times long gone. The pictures on the walls, the grand staircase, the lovely furnishings, the antiques and artefacts...it all makes this hotel feel like your home from 17th century.
Afternoon Tea in the Lounge was delicious, and relaxing.
Dinner was very good. I can recommend dinner here, even if you are not staying. Breakfast too was good, with plenty of choice.
Reception staff are very helpful and friendly. On check in, we were escorted to our room.
Our room was very lovely. Quite spacious for a twin room. A gorgeous touch was Larry the Lamb (teddy bear) on one bed - you can buy Larry, or one of his brothers or sisters from reception. A very adorable touch!
It was nice to see a (fire) map on the walls of the hotel, which gave you more understanding of the size of the hotel. Each room seems to be different in size, which sets this hotel aside from the "chain hotels"! Plenty of character in this hotel.
There are several private dining rooms, which all looked very appealing. There appears to be plenty of function/wedding room options too.
We took a walk around the immediate grounds of the hotel, with plenty of outdoor seating to while away a relaxing day. The grounds are well manicured.
This short stay did not let me down. I would definitely stay here again. And would use other Handpickedhotels.co.uk again.
